Create Realistic Cloud Background By Ink Blending with Paper Towel




Hello.  My project for today is on how to create a more realistic looking cloud background using any ink pad brand you've already have and ink blending it with a paper towel stencil.

>>  First, I'll show you step-by-step pictorial tutorial on how to create a simple cloud background design.

>>  Then, in both pictorial and video tutorial, I'll show how to combine this technique with the masking technique to create this sweet baby card.

>>  The complete list of supplies used on this card is found at the end of this post, linked to the stores where you can purchase them.


I.  Ink Blending Cloud Background with Paper Towel


SUPPLIES
 ink pad - any brand & color choice   
 ink blending tool
 cardstock
 paper towel

INSTRUCTION:

1.  Gather your supplies. Gently tear paper towel in half to create the cloud stencil.

2   Place the paper towel stencil over the desire starting area on the cardstock.

3.  With the ink blending tool, working from the top edge of the paper towel, brush the ink outward away from you onto the cardstock using a brush-stroking motion.

4.  Once a row is complete, shift the stencil upward and repeat Step 3. Continue repeating this step until all the desire areas are covered.



II. Using Masking Technique with Paper Towel Ink Blending Technique To Create Cloud Background

SUPPLIES
 ink pad - any brand & color choice   
 ink blending tool
 cardstock
 paper towel
 stamp image - (HERE - Whimsy Stamps 'Cradled by the Moon')
 acrylic block
 masking paper or Post-It note/printer paper






INSTRUCTION:

1.  Stamp your image onto the cardstock.

2.  Stamp a second image onto the masking paper to create your 'mask' layer.  Cut and temporary adhere it over the first stamped image.  The mask layer will help prevent the ink from getting all over your image.

3.  Gently tear paper towel in half to create your cloud stencil.  Position the stencil on the cardstock.

4.  With the ink blending tool, working from the top edge of the paper towel, brush the ink outward away from you onto the cardstock using a brush-stroking motion.

5.  Once a row is complete, shift the stencil upward and repeat Step 4.

6.  Continue repeating this step until all the desire areas are covered.



On this card I also used the Brayer Embossed technique to add ink to the background of the lattice embossing design.  I've share this tutorial awhile back which you can find it HERE along with a tutorial on how to create an easel box.
